Use disktool and System Profiler to eject stubborn CDROM discs
Authored by: Nash0316 on Aug 21, '04 10:08:16PM

I, too, have a CD that's stuck. It's Disc #1 out of three Mac OS X Panther Installer discs. I had to reinstall Classic and was using it. When I went to eject it, it disappeared. I've tried each and every hint I've found in here and elsewhere. Nothing works.

Then I tried your hint and I HAVE found it my the System Profiler ATA! Like yours, it's listed as disk3. I'm afraid, however, that I'm a neophyte on the steps of your hint from there, compared to most peopel who post here who probably know exactly what you're talking about. But I'm desperate.

If you ever have a minute, I'd really appreciate it if you could try to explain to me exactly, step-by-step, what I need to do. Like, what's toolfix? How do I get to it or how do I get it? And if I can get to it or get it, exactly what would I be doing with it?

MANY thanks for any help or direction you can give me!
